Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By:

Narrated By: Charlamagne Tha God

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Date: April 2017

Duration: 7 hours 47 minutes


Charlamagne Tha God-the self-proclaimed "Prince of Pissing People Off," co-host of Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, and "hip-hop's Howard Stern"-shares his unlikely success story as well as how embracing one's truths is a fundamental key to success and happiness.

In his new book, Charlamagne Tha God presents his comic, often controversial, and always brutally honest insights on how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. Beginning with his journey from the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina to his headline grabbing interviews with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Hillary Clinton, he shares how he turned his troubled early life around by owning his (many) mistakes and refusing to give up on his dreams, even after his controversial opinions got him fired from several on-air jobs. Combining his own story with bold advice and his signature commitment to honesty at all costs, Charlamagne hopes this book will give others the confidence to live their own truths.

    The narration of this book was great as it came directly from the author. Being able to hear the inflection and emphasis on certain points gave life to the book as opposed to just reading words on a page.

    I must salute you Charlamagne. This is an excellent book. The relevance, the similarities, the choices he made in life as a teenager, who he was as a child before puberty, his family, the attitude he brings, the power of truth, even his beliefs i.e. Spirits. All of these things reminded me and had me in disbelief due to the fact that I thought I was listening to a story about my husband (at least in the beginning). This book is open and honest. It is exactly what we need; real and with purpose. I hope he will chose to write more in the future.
